Have purchased 2 Sunbeam electric blankets 18 months apart and then another 18 months when the second
blanket stopped working on the left hand side also.
Both were out of warranty and I contacted Sunbeam and they weren't at all interested in helping in any way. So haven't bought one since.
I mentioned my disappointment to a friend who also had exactly the same problem with the left hand
side blanket, twice also. Not good enough for a company such as Sunbeam - no after sales service at all.
Cheap and nasty
I bought a Queen size fitted Electric Blanket Sleep Perfect
So afar I have had to replace 3 BL0400 controllers 2 under warranty 1 at my expense now I find I am up for another one at $70au so that will make the total 4 2under warranty 2 not.
When the controllers are new and for 1 winter they work well then they stop working. They are cheap nasty junk, If Sunbeam has any sense they would replace the controllers with a decent Australian made (not Chinese) controller
My advise is, unless you are made of money don't buy this brand
I cant see how Sunbeam have dodged the consumer affairs people for at least 3 years because they are replacing junk with junk knowingly and there has been according to the retailer I bought mine from no retro fit of the faulty part
Purchased two of these blankets today one for myself and one for my daughter. So so disappointed did as it suggested to put on for two to three hours for first use. Bed only luke warm after all this time on setting 5. So put on 6 for quick heat. Same only slightly warm. So still cold going to bed tonight.
I'll be returning to BIG W first thing tomorrow
Uncomfortable. Plastic protrusion on top of mattress, where shoulders lie, from control connections. Can feel the heating elements. Expensive. High price for being uncomfortable.
Heating isn’t even. Feet stay cold as well as under the pillow.
I just purchased this and it does not warm up properly on settings 1 -5 at all. The bed is luke warm after being on for over an hour. Setting 6 is the only setting which remotely makes the bed warm.
Doesn't Heat up
Mine is the same. Had it on 5 for an hour and couldn't feel any heat. Had 1 side on 3 all night and froze. Put it on 6 to warm up and it was fine but others settings are hopeless. Purchased online from Big W...think I will be taking mine back.
I just purchased this blanket but unfortunately I will be returning this electric blanket back to Big W, the only setting that works is 6....Settings 1 to 5 do not do anything.....Very unhappy
Purchased the quick and cosy electric blanket for the reason being a sunbeam product it would be ok and a little better than the cheaper versions .the heating side of things was ok along with the control panel .were the blanket failed was in the comfort department it turned a cosy bed into something rigid with configuration of the heating wires in the blanket
This electric blanket does exactly what a good electric blanket should. It heats up quickly and the boost feature is great. Overall I have been very pleased with my purchase
this blanket as 6 settings one turnes on to 6 and warms up the bed in 6minutes then you have 1 to 5 on these settings the blanket turns of after 8 hours but not on setting 6 its warm enough for cold winter nights on low settings and the best electric blanket i have ever used highly recommended
